We’ve always been quite dubious about wedding planners, yes they are a fabulous way towards a stress free wedding, but they’ve got a reputation for being expensive but they also steal your groom (ok that only happened in The Wedding Planner).
However, according to Tina Dolder, Creative Director with Northumberland based Toast Your Event, it seems that we were also wrong about the price issue too.
“There is a common misconception that a wedding planner will charge an exorbitant fee for their services and while an all inclusive arrangement will incur a charge, paying a big fee may not be necessary,” Tina said.
She also said her team and other planners have contracts with venues and caterers meaning you don’t have to trawl around wedding fairs to find what you want (although we think this is half the fun) and many planners will come up with ideas to suit you and your groom. We have to admit, Tina’s LED theme (pictured) is pretty great
We suppose this does make sense, but, we advise you always get a written quotation from a planner, before you go ahead. They may save on stress but you don’t want payment worries after the event.
